Idiot Repub thinks you can walk 1,500 miles while suffering from Ebola. Dafuq?

What a complete and utter brainless jackass is Congressman Todd Rokita, R-Bedlam. He said on a radio program that some of the illegal immigrant kids that have been conned into coming here are possible carriers of Ebola: http://www.nwitimes.com/news/local/govt-and-politics/indiana-congressman-says-immigrant-kids-might-have-ebola/article_6cd84d69-3909-50d7-aa64-cc211b491795.html

For the readers of this blog, here are the symptoms of Ebola, direct from the CDC. Tell me if you think somebody could make it overland from, say, Guatemala while suffering from this list of ailments:

Symptoms of Ebola HF typically include:

  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Joint and muscle aches
  • Weakness
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Stomach pain
  • Lack of appetite

Some patients may experience:

  • A Rash
  • Red Eyes
  • Hiccups
  • Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Chest pain
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Bleeding inside and outside of the body

Symptoms may appear anywhere from 2 to 21 days after exposure to ebolavirus though 8-10 days is most common.

Yeah, seems kinda unlikely, doesn’t it? Pretty obvious to anyone, you’d say, and you’d almost be right. It’s obvious to anyone but a Teabagging Republican Congresscritter. Tell me, why dafuq does ANYONE for these half-wits?

No, make that quarter-wits. We’re supposed to believe that Ebola sufferers (and children, at that) are trekking across Central America, hundreds and hundreds of miles, over  mountains and through  deserts? Christ on a Lone Star bottle cap, what stupidity exists between the ears of GOP politicos.

Buh-Bye, Mister Weasel: Eric Cantor gets what he deserves.

Eric Cantor, a Virginia Repub and House Majority Leader, got his ass handed to him yesterday. Seems an upstart Teabagger totally spanked his bony old butt in the primary election. And why did he get whupped on so harshly?

Because the Tea Party and other fringe elements of the Republican Party that Cantor and others tried to co-opt and use for their own purposes turned out to be even stranger bedfellows than they seemed. Because the fringie folks never got the memo saying they should just go away between elections. Because when you try to ride a tiger, it will eventually turn around and devour you.

So Cantor’s career is in the belly of the Teabag Tiger, soon to be shat out once fully consumed. And he deserves it for being foolish enough to think he could control such a beast.

Let’s see who shall be gobbled up next. Bets?
